A stack of vintage letters, stamped and worn by time are rendered in a skillful realism by Ciba Karisik. In an age of digital communication, the hand-written letter 'scripsit' or 'written by' and sent round the world reminds us of how much has changed. In addition to his use of a skillful trompe l'oeil (fool the eye) technique, the artist has heightened the importance of the subject through compositional chiaroscuro, strong tonal contrasts between light an dark. This painting is unframed.
